Setting up an rsync server

Filed under: Experiences — abbe @ 0159

Just 30 minutes back, I’d setup an rsync server. And thanks to Arindam Biswas who gave me the idea of using rsync for upstream transfer. Setting up an rsync server is very easy. Just create an /etc/rsyncd.conf with following content:

uid = nobody
gid = nobody
use chroot = no

path = /path/to/content
comment = Content

And, now start rsync in server mode with following command:

root@box# rsync --daemon

When done rsyncing kill the daemon process.
